The States are asked to decide:-
Whether they are of the opinion to approve the draft Ordinance entitled "The Land Planning and Development (Plans) (Amendment)Ordinance, 2017", and to direct that the same shall have effect as an Ordinance of the States.
This proposition has been submitted to Her Majesty's Procureur for advice on any legal or constitutional implications in accordance with Rule 4(1) of the Rules of Procedure of the States of Deliberation and their Committees.
This Ordinance amends section 9(4) of the Land Planning and Development (Plans) (Ordinance), 2007 to remove the requirement that the Development & Planning Authority have to request the Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure to lay proposals for a new development plan or amendments to the same before the States. The result of the amendment is that there will instead be a duty on the Development & Planning Authority to lay such proposals, together with the other documents listed in section 9(4), before the States.
